Context Flat on Cash Guidance

Context Therapeutics Inc. (NASDAQ: CNTX), a women’s oncology company developing novel treatments for breast and gynecological cancers, today announced updated cash guidance to extend its runway into Q1 2024.

The company plans to defer noncritical R&D activities, reduce future overhead and infrastructure expenditures, and prioritize its onapristone extended release (ONA-XR) ELONA Phase 1b/2 clinical trial and Claudin 6 (CLDN6) program.

“Context has been fortunate to collaborate with two tremendous organizations – The Menarini Group and Integral Molecular. We believe these collaborations have broadened the therapeutic potential for ONA-XR through the ELONA trial and accelerated the development of a new treatment modality to address CLDN6 positive tumors,” said CEO Martin Lehr.

The ELONA Phase 1b/2 clinical trial is evaluating ONA-XR, an oral progesterone receptor (PR) antagonist, in combination with Menarini’s elacestrant in estrogen receptor positive (ER+), PR+, HER2- metastatic breast cancer (mBCa) patients who have previously been treated with a CDK4/6 inhibitor.

An IND amendment filed specifically for this trial was submitted to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in September 2022. The Company remains on track to initiate the ELONA clinical trial in Q4 2022 and to report Phase 1b data in Q4 2023. Context retains worldwide rights for ONA-XR, other than the rights it out-licensed for Greater China.

CNTX shares eked ahead two cents, or 1.7%, to $1.22.
